P.S. I put all the extra crap (above this) for all the anomyous wusses who are always looking in the profile of a user !!!!!!

Thanks for that post Bettye Jo. So Diageo (the devil) is shuffling the distribution deck are they? Well let's hope they foul things up in their usual manner, and that American distillers can position themselves to profit from it.

"News From The Hill" is obviously a different newsletter than the "Bourbon Country Herald" of the Bardstown Bourbon Society. Do you think you could get me on the mailing list for "News From The Hill"?

Thanks for the insight. I love hearing the "inside scoop" on industry business.

Am I the only one who finds the attachments unreadable?

While they load, they are big enough that I can read them. Then when they finish loading, they suddenly become smaller, much too small for me to read.

Could there be an Internet Explorer setting that I need to change?

Yours truly,

Bettye Jo,

Thanks. Your tip plus a little squint did the trick on the August issue.

I still can't make out everything in the earlier issue.

Yours truly,

Judging by the sesame seed in the middle of the Burnetts article, Bettye Jo must have been eating a Big Mac when she scanned the newsletter.
